Good times

It's really cold over here.  I think my framfilter will blow if I would stare my 1915.  Thinking about good times makes me forget the cold.  Here in France a couple of years ago.  Fastfred's lovely 1958 and my 1966, callook forever...

Tom's callook vert in Ultra VW

At the latest Bug Show Tom was invited to let his car being photografed by Mike Key of Ultra VW.  Please watch out for the wonderfull pictures in that magasine.  I'll inform you when it will be published.  Late model callookers do work nice from time to time and Tom's convertable is the prove of that!

Peter's oval window convertable

I remember that Peter said to me to drive the car as it is when we came back from Germany the day he bought it, but things can turn out a little different from time to time.  This meant to be an easy resto, but there was some serious work on this girl.  You can check http:/slambulance.skynetblogs.be and follow the resto.  Don't forget to look at the speedy times it has been done. 

Gino did also a great job on spraying in a barn and then polishing the body.  Great result as you could see yourself at DDD.  I hope Peter will detail it a little more, so we can attend the VOLKSWORLDSHOW 2009 in this beauty.

If you were wondering about the wheels; They are the real deal Chromed Empi Sprintstars I bought for my lowlight almost 8 years ago, so for one trip only on the convertable.  Hope you liked it.



The car surely got a lot of attention...


08:40 Gepost door Editor in Algemeen | Permalink | Commentaren (2) |  Facebook |


Just came back from the first day of DDD 6.  It was large again...




I think this 67 will become a US version very soon.  I truely love this car, with it's subtile color, nice stance and swedish only brown interior.


Track action, oh yeah.


My sons were with me at DDD and they had a real good time.  Here is Millo, my youngest and he is really crasy about our little bugs.  When he sits next to me in the beetle, he just asks: Floor it, daddy... and then comes the smile on his face!

Le Bug Show

New location this year, with people saying good and bad things about the event.  I liked the location, but for me it won't be a bugshow like they used to be in Spa.  The track in Spa gives a special admosphere.  Here are some pictures taken by Speedwell, as my camera broke down the day of the event.  Thanks speedwell...

 Bugshow 2

 Bugshow 6

 This oval from Holland in Oldspeed style was very nice.  Real Empi 5's, oldspeed engine, nice stance, everything was there, even an Empi wheel and a very rare Eliminator shifter...

 Bugshow 3

This very low samba drove 1500 km to the show and NO air ride.  That must have been a hell of a drive, but boy, was this bus nice!!!

Bugshow 4

 I saw this KG vert for the first time in Erembodegem, where it had just been inported from the US, the car had an accedent coming to the EBI and had to be repainted partly.  It still stays a very nice vert.  A pré 67 KG vert is still on top of my list after the lowlight is finished.  I have plans enough untill I retire...

Bugshow 5

 We saw this late looker first in Hannover and it was awesome.  It was nice to see the car back here in Belgium.

Bugshow 7

TOPCLASS lowlight convertable.  It will get his Judson engine over the winter as I heart from the owner at the EBI2.  The security wouldn't let this car in to the show and shine at the EBI, but luckily I saw the car from up a 100 m and traced him in anyway!

Bugshow 8

 Can't get enough of this Samba...

Below, Callook forever...  Thanks speedwell for the pictures.

EMPI GTV steeringwheel resturation

I spend some time the last days restoring two Empi GTV Steeringwheels from Kurt "Empiparts" Van Perre.  The result looks good to me and they still have the originality of a genuine GTV wheel.  Let the pictures speak for itself.  If you want me to restore your GTV wheel or other wooden sportswheel, just Email me on lowlight@scarlet.be and I'll make you an reasonable offer.


Kurt gave me a 14 inch and a 15 inch wheel to restore.  The alu hub was re-polished again too all in the original style.



The lacquer used on the wood doesn't give scratches easily and for a wheel that is important!

Roland 68 callook

the living proof that late models do work as a basis to build a Callook beetle.  This great little car was a star at the EBI 2.  Very nice car, Roland.

Only a few weeks for the bugin and my Car...

... is without engine and front spindles.  I'm going to put lowered spindels on it and new rotules and the plates inside the drivetrain.  I will hopefully have some confort after 11 years of hard times...



The engine is out for new carbs (48 IDA's).  I hope everything will be OK and well before the European bug in, but time is ticking...

Budel finds

Went to Budel this weekend and found some Hella Clear red lenses for the backlights of my beetle.  I allready had red ones but repro's no originals.  Now I found originals and cleaned them up with toothpaste...



And a VDO oil temperature gauge I couldn't resist buying.  VDO pervertness.
